(CNN) - The House of Representatives passed a measure to repeal Obamacare entirely on Thursday - a move the GOP-led chamber has done twice already.
But the latest scandal involving the IRS, one of the key agencies charged with enforcing the health care law, is adding fuel to the political fire over the controversial new law.
Washington (CNN) - The way President Barack Obama's administration is handling itself amid parallel points of outrage displays a "remarkable arrogance" that could decay public trust of government, House Speaker John Boehner asserted Thursday.
And he predicted that when all the facts emerge on the targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service, employees at higher levels than those in the field office where the targeting occurred will be implicated.
(CNN) – The admitted targeting of conservative groups applying for tax exempt status is grounds for some Internal Revenue Service employees to lose their jobs, House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday.
"The IRS has admitted to targeting conservatives, even if the White House continues to be stuck on the word 'if,'" Boehner said at a press conference on Capitol Hill. "Now, my question isn't about who's going to resign. My question is who's going to jail over this scandal?"

Washington (CNN) - After endorsing former Rep Mark Sanford last month in the special congressional election in South Carolina, House Speaker John Boehner appeared to distance himself Tuesday from the controversial former governor, saying "the electorate gets to decide" who their representatives in Congress are.
Sanford gained notoriety in 2009 when while serving as South Carolina's governor he disappeared from public view and his aides said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. He later admitted he was in Argentina visiting his mistress.
